Dieting is hard. Specific rules of what to do and what not to do all the time. Heck, who wants to do all the math of calorie counting at each meal. How about we just start to create small habits that lead to better fitness and health?

You won’t find a list of “good” or “bad” foods here (That rarely works in the long run). Instead, through our Precision Nutrition Program we’ve placed foods on a spectrum of “eat more” to “eat some” to “eat less.” This makes it much easier for you to choose foods that are best for your body and taste buds—without the rigid rules or diet dogma. Nutritional value varies, but don’t think of food as “good” or “bad”. Seeing it on a spectrum from “eat more” to “eat less” helps you make better choices without branding anything off-limits. Your “eat more”, “eat some”, and “eat less” list is unique to you and may evolve as your goals, likes, and dislikes shift over time.

We can give you some ideas to get started. But YOU know best what works for you. Sustainable nutrition always prioritizes:

  • the foods and flavors you truly enjoy
  • the things you know how to cook or prep
  • and the portions that make sense for YOU.
